Arsene Wenger: Why Alexis Sanchez reminds me of Arsenal legend Ian Wright

By

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has likened midfielder Alexis Sanchez to legendary striker Ian Wright.

Since joining during the summer transfer window, the Chile international has become a key element in the Frenchman's line-up and will be back for tonight's home game against Leicester City.

"Ian Wright, he is a bit like Ian Wright," Wenger said ahead of tonight's game.

"He has the enthusiasm of Ian Wright. He is quieter than him but that is not difficult and he doesn't get booked!

"Alexis is more with the Spanish players of course but he is loved by everybody. He is very friendly and bubbly every day.

"He is dynamic and he does both parts of the game. He's important in the team because of that, because he wins you the ball back quickly as well.

"The transitions are very good from defence to attack and attack to defence."

Asked to give more details about the injury that kept the 26-year-old out of Saturday's North London derby, the Arsenal boss said: "It was difficult for him not to play [at Tottenham].

"If it was the last game of the season he would have played [and] he has had a bit of a winter break now, one that he didn't really want.

"But he got one and I think he will now be recovered and fit until the end of the season.

"For us it is important that he has no setback as, once you go into February, if you have a muscular injury and a guy has a setback, you say 'bye bye' as the season is over as it is six weeks out.

"By the time you come back to your full level it is April and that is why we didn't take the gamble [by playing him at Tottenham]."
